Summer School 2012

From June 18-22, 2012 the Berlin Summer School for Myology took place for the third time. Again world leading researchers came to Berlin to teach MyoGrad students and other interested young scientist basic muscle science and to present their latest data. For the first time 3rd year MyoGrad students took an active part in the meeting, introduced the speakers and lead through the sessions quite professionally.
